Oregon Roots Fam:

The Corvallis Bambu Station/Iba show scheduled for Mon. November 15th has been cancelled by the Platinum Club for circumstances out of our control.
The rest of the dates are shaping up very nicely, and it should be one of the best tours this fall.
If you were planning on attending the Corvallis show, just trod on up to Eugene on Saturday November 13th, and catch the show at John Henry's Club.
This is a 21+ venue, located at 77 W. Broadway in downtown Eugene, the same spot that Midnite and Dezarie blessed earlier this year.
Tickets are $12/$14 for most of the Bambu shows on the tour.
The Green-Up sound will open the show at 9:00 pm.

Here's a nice article on Bambu just released:

"Never Forget: Bambu Station
By Diane "Livonn" Adam
posted on cityflight.com



The West Coast reggae music scene has been bombarded by artists from the Virgin Islands, such as Midnite, whose truth-seeking lyrics, though strikingly profound, can often be elusive to the uninitiated listener. This is not true of the more mature and polished sound of St. Croix's Bambu Station, who offer an intense and thoroughly penetrating delivery of compelling, intelligent and crystal clear lyrics that are further beautified by a powerful reggae rhythm. They eloquently expound on the inhuman agony endured by African people by the hands of the unjust. During their performance on Sunday, September 5 at the Monterey Bay Reggaefest, Bambu Station's lead singer/songwriter/producer Jalani Horton's soulful, emotional vocals cut through the air and landed with pitch perfect perfection for all to hear.

"We come to expose them who deceive the people and hurt the people," Horton said.

Blazed across his shirt was the image of the belly of a slave ship and scattered human shackle. Intensifying this image were words that immediately grabbed your attention: "The African Hellacaust." These words are more than a simple reggae slogan or catchy cliche telling the world that everything is "irie." The words touch on a subject that begs to be remembered by the world and most importantly by the descendents of the victims of slavery who still cry out of the past to never forget.

"Over 100 million innocent, peaceful African men, women and children packed like sardines in slave ship holes died during the Middle Passage, victims of the white man's unprovoked barbaric aggression. The survivors arrived on the shores of the Americas and the West Indies, only to be sold into inhuman system of chattel slavery."

This is the critical mindset of the incredibly talented reggae group, Bambu Station, a stunning musical collective that also includes the legendary Tuff Lion on rhythm guitar.

Maryland based Bambu Station formed in 1996 and have been burning up the international reggae scene even more since releasing their 2003 groundbreaking album, "One Day." Though they are no strangers to fans of reggae music in the east coast, many in northern California got their first opportunity to experience their mind-expanding music in Monterey. It was a performance like no other. They stunned the crowd with the songs "Man In Exile," "House Of The Living," (from their 2002 album Talking Roots, Volume I), "Even Man Cry," "Humanity Bawlin," "Fire" and "Eyes of Man," a song expressing the struggle of women, which Horton says is dedicated to the spirit of Betty Shabazz, wife of slain civil rights leader Malcolm X. The music was so frank that Horton had to stop mid-song to comment that he wished he could sing more love songs and fun lyrics. But in these times, until that day comes Bambu Station will continue to lace the beauty of their music with words that cry out for justice, change and healing for the sake of all of humanity.

Bambu Station will be back in the Bay Area this month. They are scheduled to perform at Ashkenaz in Berkeley on November 18th. Opening the show will be the equally talented singer IBA, who will perform songs from his splendid 2003 CD release, "Jah Lion--Children of The Nile." If you love crucial roots, reggae music that encompasses spiritual insight, cultural truth, intelligent lyrics and driving rhythms this is the group to see. Even jazz lovers will find something special about Bambu Station. This is a group that most certainly will find a place in the hearts and minds of all music lovers. For more information about Bambu Station go to their website at www.mtneborecords.com.
